The Last City

Die letzte Stadt
Heinz Emigholz
2020 • Germany • 101’
Portuguese Premiere

An archaeologist and a weapons designer meet in the Negev Desert and begin discussing love and war. The film then proceeds with changing actors in changing roles—a round dance that takes us to the cities of Athens, Berlin, Hong Kong and São Paulo. The characters include: an old artist who meets his younger self; a mother who lives with her two grown sons (a priest and a policeman); a Chinese woman and a Japanese woman; a curator and a cosmologist. Their dialogues deal with now obsolete social taboos, generational conflict, war guilt and cosmological musings.
